1st. week of October 2022, rides

I rode for 3 days in a row on the first week of Oct. the last ride on the 6th. Jo got to join me, the two rides before she had appointments both days. Just local area trail loop rides in our area so I will just list a video and some photos. The weather has really started to feel like FALL here, temps in the high 60 or low 70 F but until yesterday (7th.) it was sunny and excellent days to ride! On Sunday Oct. 9th. is the "Motorless Morning event at the Garden of the Gods Park. From 5am to 12 noon, they will allow "NO CARS" in the park and riders and walkers, skater's, etc. get to use the roads so that's the plan for tomorrow. No, I won't be there at 5 AM, probably get there about 9 am do the loop of the park. It's a fun event that only happens two time a year! So, here's the vid and the photos, enjoy! 

This photo is a tale of two parts, usually we only ride the Cottonwood Creek Trail up to Cottonwood Regional Park, but we decided it was such a nice day we'd ride the 2nd. half of the trail to its current end at Powers Blvd. The 2nd. half starts as you go through the "The Tunnel" and has a lot of uphill grades sections and is in the open area with little or no shade in sight. So, in the heat of the summer, we don't normally ride this part of the trail when it's HOT!! On this day, it was only 65 F so we enjoyed getting to the end and it made a 27 mile days ride!! :) FUN. Of course, we stopped at Panera Bread on the way home for unsweet iced tea and ate our homemade snack and then headed south on the PPGW to home. Just a excellent day to be "Out and About on the Recumbents"! ;)
